San Francisco, Ca. – Perforce Software has just made available P4Mylyn, its new connector to the Mylyn task and ALM framework for Eclipse.
P4Mylyn's task-focused interface filters a developer's view to include only those Perforce-managed assets, along with their dependencies, that are associated with a given change request.
Application lifecycle management (ALM) is a software engineering methodology that incorporates tools for requirements management, architecture, coding, testing, tracking, and release management
P4Mylyn was developed in cooperation with Tasktop Technologies, creators of Eclipse Mylyn. The P4Mylyn extension is distributed via Mylyn's Connector Discovery mechanism, allowing it to be easily downloaded and installed from within the Eclipse IDE and ensuring interoperability with a wide variety of Tasktop Certified open source and commercial ALM solutions.
The Perforce Mylyn Connector automatically tracks code changes on a per-task basis, making it easy to commit to Perforce only the relevant changes when working on multiple tasks.
It automatically generates commit comments that link back to the relevant story, defect or issue, providing complete traceability from any line of code back to the relevant task associated with the change.
